address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's

states of america. and if the european allies and nato cannot manage to pursue this with the same intensity that they have exhibited over the last week, they are likely to call upon the united states to do more and the u.s. will remain part of the coalition. i think that's part of the complexity of this and the contradictions inherit in his policy that the president will have to address this evening. >> nick and david, back with us in a few minutes. how has the coalition military campaign changed the balance of power on the ground in libya? i want to go to the map and look at this. the president does not like the term war when it comes to this. is this a war? is the united states at war? >> well, you talk about war and i think you talk about world war one and i would not use the term "war." the guy on the ground getting shot at, it's like war. >> the president of the united states addresses the american people tonight. i want to close the map and go back here to march 18th. let me close this one down today. this is march 18th. this is the day before it all started. and here's -- y

. the second issue deals with america's interests and whether what happened in libya actually effects the united states. >> secretary gates said it is not of vital interest to the united states. >> i don't think it's vital interest for the united states but we clearly have interests there, and it's a part of the region which is a vital interest for the united states. >> what we're doing and qaddafi's history and the potential for the disruption and instability was very much in our interests as bob said and seen by our european friends and our arab partners as very vital to their interests. >> shepard: well, those interests, of course, include all together now, oil. libya has the world's ninth largest proven reserves of oil. and 90% of libya's oil goes to europe. primarily italy, germany, france, and spain. there is one more overarching issue with libya. that's whether it sets a bad new bar. in other words, is what we do now a sort of indicator of what's to come later if there is another uprising? or is this some sort of special case? secretary clinton says places like syria or the ivo

to the american people. since returning from south america, the president has begun to talk in greater detail about our involvement in libya. for the second time, he's discussed our operations in and around libya with the congressional leadership. over the weekend he devoted his entire address to the topic and he'll speak to the american people tonight about our operations in libya. all of this is welcome and in my view, overdue. before addressing what answers i hope to hear from the president this evening let me address the notifications to congress that the president has made. prior to the initiation of combat activities in libya the congressional leadership received two forms of notification of the president's decision to order americans into harm's way. prior to departing for his overseas trip, the president notified the congressional leadership of his plans to send american forces in to combat in action a limited discreet role to destroy the integrated air defenses of the libyan government and to enable our allies to estab

too contradictory characterizations of what america's interest is in libya. what did you hear from that exchange between secretaries gates and clinton? >> well, gates is clearly a realist. he's always been. this is not new. that's how he's been able to serve two presidents well, both bush and obama. but the notion of what is vital interest is something that one can debate. if you had asked me -- and i come out of a realist background myself. if you had asked me six months ago, do we have an interest to intervene in libya, i would have said, probably not, i would have to scratch my head to see whether we did or not. but things have changed dramatically over the past few weeks. libya is not just about libya. we see all these revolutions are connected. we see that public empowerment in the region is connected. we see that the message that is sent in libya is heard in damascus and in yemen. there is a very important american interest in the revolutions and particularly in seeing the peaceful revolutions that are seeking primarily freedom and dignity succeed because that is the best ant

of nuclear energy in america. >> the partial meltdown at three mile island had a crippling effect on the u.s. nuclear power program. no new plans have been ordered in the u.s. since then. last year president obama announced that would change. his administration was putting $8 billion into federal loan guarantees toward america for new power plant in 30 years. in the wake of the japan disaster, president obama and nuclear experts have expressed confidence that u.s. power plants are safe, but that may not be enough to ease public concerns. there's a sharp decline in the percentage of americans that support building a nuclear plant. that theory has not spread to capitol hill. some lawmakers have raised concern, but nuclear energy still has bipartisan support. >> i am not persuaded that nuclear power should be deleted from the list of options that we look at. >> i would not sign an executive order to freeze construction of nuclear plants. >> last year president obama said the u.s. cannot afford to fall behind. if america fails to invest in alternative energy, it will mean lost jobs and higher
and i are back in three minutes. martha: here's what's developing right now in "america's newsroom". libyan state television, showing what they say is leader mommar qaddafi traveling in tripoli's suburb, the video showing the leader surrounded, and a person due in court, plan to go launch terror attacks. his plan mentioned former president george w. bush. >>> and in washington, congress to pass a budget by friday to avoid a shutdown, reports the white house is now working with democrats to cut another $20 billion in spending cuts. bill: pocket change, right, martha? twenty billion, right pocket? that's right. >>> so news today from japan. and new concerns about harmful radiation. officials saying one of the six reactors is now spreading further into the ocean. also, late last night, a 6.5 earthquake, shaking eastern japan, and that briefly prompted a tsunami alert. but how extensive is the radiation in the water and soil? live from oka -- osaka, domic di-natale. >> we're not sure of the radiation leak going the water. there has been an issue, with the the fukushima plant, where the

, form her pennsylvania governor ed rendell and amy holmes, co-host of "america oes morning news," a radio program, also a former speech writer for bill frisk. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> governor, you've heard the critics. how does barack obama made the objective clear? what does he have to say tonight? >> i think events are actually doing the talking for president obama. i think the policy is going to be as successful as president clinton's policy stopping ma lo. one, we built a successful coalition now doing a lot of the fighting and helping us pay for this. two, we stopped a massacre of 50,000 to 100,000 people in benghazi. three, we weakened gadhafi's forces. four, we've enhanced the u.s.'s reputation with the arab world as was shown by the reaction to the downed american pilot. all that remains to be done is to get gadhafi out, and i think that's going to happen, i think that has almost become inevitab inevitable. i think his own armed forces are eventually going to pulg the plugs. >> if he makes the four points the governor outlined, d
don bring libya america, and the arab spring? we do have a sense at the moment of being in the middle of a great historical whirlwind. we are being taken somewhere. i think few of us are certain about where we are going to land. tonight, the president is going to address the nation for the first time from the oval office. he will speak on the topic of the war in libya. none of us are quite sure what is he is going to say, but i think many propose a lot of hope that he will express a clear sense of what the united states is to achieve what our goals are what our plans are for the future, and how we see libya fitting into the broader question of the revolutions that are going on, even as we sit here today, throughout the middle east and continuing to spread throughout syria continuing to royal yemen bahrain and elsewhere. it is difficult, i think for even seasoned experts to stay on top of. tomorrow the international community will meet in london to discuss many of these same questions. pres. sarkozy and prime minister cameron in the last hour issued a statement suggesting they wanted t
to this. tony blair went to libya in 2004 and announced that america had its new ally in the war against terror. condi rice went to libya also, to meet her new friend, muammar gaddafi in 2008. five weeks ago, libya was our ally. now there are many reports in the media about how many of the rebels are either al-qaeda or linked to al-qaeda. what i do not understand is why this new clause i military alliance with al-qaeda has formed -- new quasi-military alliance with al-qaeda has formed. they describe how many of the rebels are al-qaeda or led by al-qaeda. you can go to a and there's a very good article on how many of the rebels are linked to al- qaeda. host: you think the mission of the u.s. should be altered because of the influence of al- qaeda in libya? caller: i think the mission itself is illegal because the un resolution itself violates the u.n. charter. the un charter says it can only be collective military action to restore international peace and order and not to intervene in another country's civil affairs. host: richard, in chicago illinois. talk to us about y
, particularly the secretary of defense, saying that this campaign in libya is not in america's vital interest, questions laid out by senator lugar and criticism. pretty high stakes for the president. >> yes. and i don't think he'll be able to ask the central question. you asked the right question in talking about the national interest. the question hasn't yet been answered as to why it is that libya, of all countries in the region, has won the humanitarian defense sweepstakes of 2011. we have seen many countries, both in the region and throughout the world, where civilian loss and civilian suffering has been much, much greater, congo, we've lost about 5 million people, sudan 2 million to 3 million people, never any talk of military intervention. take a look at what's going on in the ivory coast today. secretary clinton was talking about the number of refugee that's might have come out of a gadhafi attack on benghazi. we've got 700,000 refugees in the ivory coast right now, close to 1 million, in fact. why, why libya? hasn't been answered. >> do you think, savannah, that the president will mak
secretary gates. obama, in the end, made a decision, we are going in, but now his objective is that america ought to leave and have the war on going. he wants to give up -- it is process over bad policy. you just heard him say in that at the exit strategy is executed this week. >> what is the exit strategy? >> the u.s. has special capability that will still be at us and that war. >> there are two parts to this, the easy part, the no-fly zone, and the other part, continuing to protect the civilian population, which apparently we have. >> gaddafi tries to test the no- fly zone. one fighter shot down by a french fighter, that is the end of that. >> well, the reason that we do is that after six days of negotiation, in which the u.s., through the secretary of state, desperately tried to get nato and others to take over, she did not succeed. that is why she at that awkward a statement tuesday night, saying "we are negotiating, drawing up our plans tornado to take over." the thing is, if we give that up, which obama is desperate to do, that is what he means by it exit strategy, and then, airstrike
the heavy role america plays in nato. mr. obama believes that america's foreign intervention has so damaged the country's image that the stamp of u.s. leadership on this one would be a stain. that explains his willingness to allow the situation to deteriorate until a coalition could be formed. and the u.n.'s blessing could be obtained. that has not stopped critics. and on the right and left from complaining. but so far, the gripes have come mostly from the fringes or from those who habitually complain when a president uses force without congressional permission. the odds now that if the president asked for congressional authorization he would get it. but then he might have to keep talking about the mission after tonight. doesn't seem to want to do that. bret? >> bret: we talked about the difference between the u.s. policy if gaddafi needs to go and the u.n. security council resolution protecting libyan population. if gaddafi is in power one month from now, is this all a failure? >> well, i think that piece of it, the united states policy that gaddafi has to go will be seen as having up to t
the muslim world was the start of something. and he said he wanted to try and change america's standing and its place in people's minds and in the world. and a lot of people called him on it. these rebellions all over the middle east amount to a lot of young people sort of saying, okay, you want to change your role, come support us. in egypt, he began to do that. in libya, he's trying to take another step, it's an emerging doctrine, again, very controversial, politically unpopular in many quarters. that's what i'm going to be listening for tomorrow, is there an obama doctrine? is he really serious about realigning america so groups like nato or even the arab league will have some influence over our foreign policy. he wants to make sure america is not simply going it alone. and i'm expecting to hear him explain exactly how the united states will step back and let others step forward. >> errol louis, thank you, sir. >> thank you, don. >> and, again, the president will address the nation about libya tomorrow night. cnn will bring it live to you with coverage starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern.
is this is a different kind of coalition from the ones we maybe saw through the bush years where it was america with other countries supporting what america wanted to do. here they're saying look at the arab involvement, look at the international community taking a lead here. that's not going to satisfy people politically. it's not going to answer the critics on the hill, but it's very much how the white house is trying to frame this very gray, mushy mission right now. >> a mushy mission. that's a mouthful. richard wolffe, thanks, sir. >>> gregory meeks is a democrat from new york and a member of the house foreign affairs committee. are you concerned, sir, that the president did not come to congress to get authorization for the military intervention? >> being a member of congress, you always like the president to come to you first. however, when you talk about the history of no-fly zones, it's happened before. president bill clinton did it in bosnia and kosovo. >> there's a long history of presidents taking military action before first consulting congress. zachary taylor did it back in the 1800
